Lead Developer

Channel 1 Media Solutions

December 2010 - Present

My role at Channel 1 is diverse. It includes hiring and training new employees in all aspects of software development. I am the key liason between our clients and other members of the development team for any technical requirements of their project. From evaluating the possibilty of integrating client specified third party services; determing how long such a task would take; and finding alternatives that would be more cost effective. I am also identifing when such work could benefit the company in a more general way; either by enhancing our development processes or improving the products we sell overall.

In addition to my role as a manager/mentor; my capacity to develop both front end and back end is unmatched, and includes database design, php development, rest api creation; html, css and js development. My preference is to use a Javascript framework for front end development such as VueJS or React; but I am also adept at vanilla js; and jquery if the needs arise.

  • Work directly with clients as a lead developer and project manager
  • Develop responsive websites and applications from technical design to production
